If you are recovering from a heart attack, living with heart failure or wanting to prevent heart disease, working with a local acupuncturist may be beneficial to your health. Acupuncture is a Chinese medicine technique that is 3,000 years old. It involves using thin needles that the local acupuncturist inserts into points of the body to help chi (qi) flow. Whether you have heart disease, atrial fibrillation, palpitations or Brugada syndrome, a local acupuncturist may may be able to help. Some of the other conditions your local acupuncturist may treat include chronic pain, infertility, insomnia, anxiety, depression, stress, fibromyalgia, cancer, pregnancy and osteoarthritis. Your local acupuncturist can work with your local cardiologist to create the best health and wellness plan for your condition. If you work with other healthcare providers such as a local rheumatologist, registered dietitian or family physician, your local acupuncturist can work with them too. If you want to learn more about how a local acupuncturist can help, start by talking to your local family physician.
